Knight Foundation invests in cities where the Knight brothers once owned newspapers, supporting both authentically local and relevant national ideas.

What We Look For

Knight supports Columbia’s work in revitalizing its downtown to attract and retain talented people and accelerate economic opportunity.

We invest in Columbia’s core city vibrancy by better connecting the University of South Carolina to the community by supporting civic engagement, smart design, the arts and entrepreneurship.
